Wouldn't be great to see follow-up stories?
Ah, a new website. That might be the solution. Thanks for letting me know. I think that it's great that you track TED talks. I've tried to do it myself, but often find myself mired in too many informations about a topic, upon which i can't sift through the information, as I sometimes don't know what's relevant now. By the way, I see your a TED translator, so I'll use the opportunity to say thank you for contributing and helping out those of us who needs translations from time to time.

The strengt of TED is how accessible it is, you can change which ever parameter you want to when searching for talks, you are presented with related talks after viewing a single one ect. Within that design filosofi, the "invite them back" platform maybe just have to be more in focus? Be integrated as well as TED's other core functions? I haven't, as far as I can remember, stumbled upon a "back again"-talk.

Well that's the question. My initial thought was that it was to be small video-exposes of the idea implemented in the "real world" together maybe with interviews of people it has affected or inspired to make a change in their community. Of the top my head, it would be short exposes, merely detailing events that has transpired since it's TED Talk. The TED Talk being ground zero for a chronological expose of maybe 5, 7, or 10 minutes. I like your idea of people making themselves available to lend a hand with a given project, later on that might be another TED segment called "TED Helpers" or something like that. Initially I "just" want to, as a TED follower, to see video exposé-followups

Hi Greg. That is true, you could follow most TED speakers yourself afterwards. But the great strenght of TED is the ability to inspirere and create commuity revolving around (possible) change and human ingenuity. But the catalyst for e.g. inspiration, is someone or something other than yourself, being the inspiration. The central tenet of the idea is therefore, that we need to see people or concepts in action, in order to feel that new ideas really DO mean change and create motivation. Making it visible is the key as TED is visual. In regards to your question I have no single one TED talk, I feel almost all of them can be appreciated on their own. That's what so great about TED. Thank you for the reply

With all the smart things we learn fred TED talks, does it ever make you wonder that...
Hi Fritzie, and thank you for your reply. In regards to your statement about biting of a smaller piece, I think that's exactly the crux of the matter: I don't think it's in any way conscious or not, whether you choose to participate, organize a TED event or anything else like that. Big bites and small bites alike. My belief is that most people feel inspired after watching a TED talk, but somehow revert back to a state of, I guess you could call it mental homeostasis afterwards, and therefore don't act or initiate change (in some way or other), despite them feeling that what they saw is obvious and they should back it and "do something". I think it's the same mechanism that lets us be inspirered and ready for change at 1AM or 2AM in the morning when we lie in bed and contemplate the small and big things in life. Those thoughts never seem to materialize into anything come the sun. So I should maybe re-phrase my question to "How can we get better at overcoming our mental homeostasis? And how can we instill motivation and excitement?"
